Joseph C. Schick, age 88, former President & CEO of Raub Supply, passed away on August 4th, 2019.
Born in 1930 in Little York, New Jersey, Schick attended Frenchtown High School, was a U.S. Navy Veteran, and a graduate of Rutgers University. While at Rutgers, he was on the Varsity Crew and tried out for the 1952 Helsinki U.S. Olympics team. After graduation, he was employed by Johnson & Johnson, Proudfoot Management Consultants, and later formed his own company, Schick, Inc.
In the ’80s, Schick purchased the Raub Supply Company, headquartered in Lancaster, Pa. Raub was a distributor of electrical, plumbing, HVAC, sealing devices, PVF, flooring, and appliances. Schick then sold Raub Supply to the Noland Company in 1997, located in Newport News, Virginia.
Schick is preceded in death by his wife Patricia (Cottrell) and is survived by a daughter, Betsy Schick-Niederer; two sons, David Schick and Gary Schick; and six grandsons: Jacob Schick, Adam Joseph Niederer, Edward Schick, Maxwell Niederer, Emery Schick, and Tanner Schick.
In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to the Alzheimer’s Association.
